I'm trying to use an Android emulator to use services running on my local machine. I have a site running under IIS which in my host file looks like this:
I have several sites running under Apache Tomcat. My host file for Tomcat related sites:
127.0.0.1 internal.localhost.company.com # port:8090 127.0.0.2 external.localhost.company.com # port:8081 127.0.0.3 auth.ws.localhost.company.com # port:8082 127.0.0.8 mysite.localhost.company.com # port:8086
What I have tried so far (in the following steps):
adb pull /etc/hosts
Edit Android host file:
127.0.0.1 localhost 10.0.2.2 myefc.localhost.efinancialcareers.com adb remount adb push hosts /etc/hosts
Then I try to visit myefc.localhost.efinancialcareers.com in the browser and am told webpage not found. I’d at least expect it to go to www.local.company.co.uk.
What I would ideally like is to be able to go to any site on my local machine which are specified in the above host file examples.
I am on Windows 7 and using Tomcat 6. The emulator I am using is nexus one.
I've been told here that this may be a networking issue - http://android.stackexchange.com/questions/37310/cant-connect-android-emulator-to-look-at-local-sites-and-services
